31st August 2014: WIG re styled the wig and added more onto the headpeice

31st August 2014: New Leggings bought a new pair of white leggings will dye them green and modify them and add the gold detailing

24th August 2014: Legging detail Using the embroidery patches from the original version on the new leggings now painting them gold :D they look so much better now

15th August 2014: Circlet and beads i decided to make a circlet for this version rather than a string of beads so i made this out of craft foam hot glue and painted it gold it will be clustered with beads after the paint is dry

the hand painted beads were black so to tie in with the costume i painted them the same gold

15th August 2014: Armour Wip More painting this time with a darker colour as i ran out of the lighter paint >.<

15th August 2014: Work in progress cape 70% finished - i have embroidered all the leaves with green wool to make them stand out and finish the cape off after 4 years lol i will be sewing on the missing sequins and beads to the top cape and start adding stars out of beads to the bottom

14th August 2014: Dragon finished the dragon took about a week to finish and i am proud of how it turned out due to never doing anything like this in my life

10th August 2014: Work in progress Skirt - 100% finished - attached the stars on the skirt that were coming loose with fabric glue and gave the back of the skirt the gold trim i had meant to do ages ago and that was that part finished
Corset - 70% finished - i painted the gold stars on and started beading round the edges to give it a clean finish

7th August 2014: Mist Dragon I have decided to try and make the dragon as a prop for this version of the costume it will be made using a wire frame with air clay head and feet, cover in upholstery foam, cover over with felt,paint the clay parts,add beads for eyes with lashes,craft foam wings and covered in white fur

6th August 2014: Armour Wip i made my armour peices out of craft foam hot glue and air clay when dry get painted gold

3rd August 2014: Remake needed so my Rydia costume was damaged on the way back from Ayacon so i have had to throw away the bodysuit that was beyond repair and begin to rework the whole costume

i will use the corset,skirt and cape from the old costume and remake everything else

Stunning work, the amount of detail and hand-stitching is so impressive! I especially like your sequinned cape and headpiece. Your dragon was also a nice addition.
